Could this plugin support WordPress shortcodes? Tweet, YouTube etc. shortcodes would be very useful for livebloggers especially as has the shortcode in the Tweet embed.

That's a great idea!


This is a great idea.

Mohammad Jangda mjangda Allow OEmbed and shortcodes in liveblog entries.
Pass our entry content through do_shortcode and autoembed to allow easy embedding of rich media.

Also include a filter so this can be disabled in contexts where it's not necessary (or desired).

Original forum post that led to this issue --> If any enhancement is done directly to Liveblog, I'm willing to test. Thanks!

I don't know if I understand the original question. I added in shortcodes directly to the live blog in the frontend and it displays the shortcodes just fine after page refresh.

@Bwade it shouldn't require a page refresh, it is meant to be a live blog. Also when I last tried the shortcodes stayed as shortcodes, didn't expand into embeds.

Robert Wade

I totally agree with that comment, "It is live and shouldn't require a refresh". I have been testing for some time now and the end user will see the embed and not the shortcode. The refresh is only for Admin. I would love to see this get fixed so when I, as admin, post a shortcode that it renders the embed.

@Bwade @paulmwatson The GitHub issue doesn't match the original issue I posted. The issue wasn't with shortcodes -- it was with oEmbeds not resolving. See my previous comment above for the link to the forum post that spawned this GitHub issue.
